Philippine Dissenters May Face Terrorist Designation Sorry if it's already been posted

MANILA ó President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines is expected to sign sweeping antiterrorism legislation that critics said on Thursday would allow the authorities to classify government opponents as terrorists and detain people for critical social media posts.

The measure, which has passed both houses of Congress, neared finalization as the United Nations released a scathing report that cites widespread human rights violations under Mr. Duterte, including the extrajudicial killing of more than 8,000 people.

Despite years of international and domestic criticism over rights abuses, Mr. Duterte appears eager to double down on his strategy of suppressing dissent and to give the police an even freer hand to crack down.

Critics said the legislation was so broadly written that it would allow the arrest and detention of people without a warrant or a charge for criticizing the government or acts such as causing property damage or carrying a weapon.

This is MF45 wet dream playbook. I wonder if Duarte is also a putin puppet.

This is what will happen to us if we donít vote every last republican out of office. Smash them like cockroaches. They have shown us what they are by not speaking out against the police terrorism we are experiencing with the brutality of Americans in our country .
